Certified used cars, also termed as certified pre-owned cars are actually the cars that have been refurbished, inspected and certified by a manufacturer trained mechanic. These cars normally cost more than non-certified used cars and come with special financing, extended warranty and some other additional benefits.
There are two kinds of certified used cars; ones that are certified by the manufacturer and ones that are backed by the dealer. Finding a certified used car can be a difficult experience as not all certified pre-owned sales are foolproof. However to find a good deal, it is important to enquire into the details. Find a dealer who offers warranty for an extended period of time along with loaner car reimbursement and roadside assistance.
Taking into account all the assurances and privileges that come with certified cars, it is obvious that these cars are costlier than the non certified vehicles. The price to be paid for such a vehicle depends upon the model as well as make of the vehicle. This figure is likely to be high in case of luxury cars.
It is very essential to identify as to who does the actual reconditioning repairs and inspection, if any. Both dealer-certified and OEM program cars are typically examined by the staff of the selling dealer and not by the manufacturer. The fact that the vehicle inspection points, warranties and other program components varies; it would be a wise decision on the part of buyers to compare the CPO (Certified Pre-Owned) programs and determine which best represents their expectations and requirements. These certified used cars are normally in better shape and are offered with generous warranty protection by some manufacturers.
There are many websites listing many affordable, quality certified used cars online. Customers only have to select the best deal and make the purchase wisely. Once a used car is backed by the manufacturer’s approval stamp; it gets an extended service or warranty and is tacked on a higher price by the dealer. As such the certified pre-owned or used cars can be referred to as the repaired new cars at below original price.
